Fukui is confident that the Small Hybrid Sports Concept will demonstrate how advanced environmental technology can be fused with exciting styling and fun-to-drive characteristics.......

Funny I thought thats what we already had in the original Insight !! so nothing new here except a styling exercise, a carrott since there's no way that will make production.

Hate to be so pessimistic but have been around long enough to know this is how they work.

Dgate, we have already had it confirmed by Honda (in person on a BBC Report) that a new small, cheaper (than Civic) hybrid will be out in 2009. Whether it carries through all of the features from this concept is another matter...

Kind of stupid-looking, to my taste. That "nose" sort of thing on the front end... yuck. Isn't that pure '70s Detroit?

And f course if only comes with a CVT, there's no chance of selling one to me, no matter how good it is otherwise. Automatic transmissions are fine - as adaptive technology for the disabled!

I will wait until I see one in person before I make a decision on whether I like it or not.

I get a strong feeling that car does not run.
I feel it is a prop.
A good looking prop, though.
